  • What Is PR visa?

    A permanent resident (PR) is someone who has been given permanent resident status but is not a Canadian citizen. When foreign nationals first apply for and receive permanent residency, they are issued a PR visa in their passport. It provides approved individuals a one-time entry to Canada and has a validity period during which individuals are expected to travel to Canada and complete their landing formalities. Individuals who are in Canada temporarily such as a student, foreign worker or visitor, are not considered permanent residents and would not be issued a PR visa. The most sought after way to settle as a PR in Canada is through immigration streams such as Express Entry and Provincial Nominee Programs (PNP). Refugees can also become permanent residents through the Government-Assisted Refugee Program or the Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program.

  • How do I qualify to immigrate to Canada?

    There are three broad categories or routes to obtaining permanent residence: the economic class, the family class (which requires sponsorship by a Canadian or permanent resident relative), and the refugee category. There is also a discretionary route to permanent residence through humanitarian and compassionate applications. Contact us to find out whether you qualify in one of these categories.

  • Where can I get assistance with filling out the visa forms?

    You don’t have no need to worry about filling out the visa form. Rattan Immigration will help you to do that.

  • What are the Provintial Nominee Programs?

    The Provincial Nominee Programs allow Canada’s provinces and territories to select individuals who indicate an interest in settling in a particular province. It also includes individuals who will be able to contribute to that province/territory’s economic development.

  • Can candidates use both Provincial Nominee Programs and Express Entry?

    Yes, there is a connection between the PNPs and Express Entry. Once a candidate updates his or her Express Entry profile to show that he or she has an enhanced provincial nomination certificate, he or she will be given enough additional points (600) to be invited to apply at a subsequent draw of candidates from the pool. Candidates must be in the pool before applying to a province or territory for an enhanced provincial nomination certificate or submitting an Expression of Interest to a province or territory under one of the enhanced PNP streams.

  • Does it help to have relatives in Canada?

    The principal applicant receives five points for adaptability if they or their accompanying spouse or common-law partner, have a close relative in Canada such as a parent, grandparent, child, grandchild, spouse, common-law partner, sister, brother, uncle, aunt, nephew or niece who is a Canadian citizen or permanent resident and is physically residing in Canada.

  • What is Express Entry?

    Canada selects economic immigrants by evaluating applicants based on characteristics such as age, education level, work experience and language fluency and assigning points based on each characteristic. Through the Express Entry system, every few weeks Canada selects applicants in the Express Entry pool based on a fluctuating point score. Selected applicants are then able to submit an application for permanent residence in the economic class.

  • Is it difficult to be sponsored for a permanent residence by a family member

    Only certain family members can be sponsored for Canadian permanent residence: spouses, common law and conjugal partners, parents and grandparents, and dependent children. Siblings cannot be sponsored for permanent residence directly, but if they are under 22 years of age then can accompany sponsored parents.

  • How long are processing times for Immigration Application?

    Processing times of applications for permanent residence are different depending on the category, but generally speaking application processing times are quicker than they have been in previous years. Contact us to find out the latest immigration processing times.
